Every company has different requirements to a business system. The industry in which you operate plays an important role in this. Still, there are a few requirements that should be a high priority for any organization. How well does your business system meet these 4 requirements?
1. A future-proof, stable, proven successful business system
In business software you need stability. A solid software solution provided by a knowledgeable partner with the right expertise and a successful track record. After all, it is about the future of your company. Therefore, work with a business system that is developed on a strong platform, which has been successfully used by similar organizations for many years and which will also be supported and enhanced in the future. A system with a bright perspective for the future.
2. A user-friendly business system, quick and easy to learn for any user
The user experience is becoming increasingly important. You want a system that can be learned quickly and easily by any user. Current and new employees, from management to the workshop, always and everywhere. A user-friendly system saves enormous costs for training and education, and ensures that users are more productive and enjoy their work more. Is the system in your organization complicated, unclear and/or difficult to access? Take a look at an intuitive and modern business system, suitable for managers interested in KPIs and reports, but also for "heavy users" who are interested in every detail.
"Business systems are becoming more and more industry focused. There is simply no business system that works well for every type of organization."
3. A business system based on modern, widely used technology
The technology of your system may be boring and uninteresting to many employees in your company, but it is of critical importance. Now and in the future. When the technology of your business system is modern and widely used, this makes your company more effective. For example, does your system have links with other business applications such as Outlook, Word and Excel? Are you able to easily and automatically exchange data with customers, suppliers, the bank or the accountant? Are new tools and solutions that increase productivity compatible with your business system?
4. A system developed specifically for your industry
Business systems are becoming more and more industry focused. There is simply no business system that works well for every type of organization. So, it is important to find a solution that has been developed specifically for your type of organization. And more important; one that is supported by a partner with industry knowledge. Are you currently working with a generic system or a system focused on a completely different industry? Then there is a good chance that you will miss opportunities. A strategic partner who understands your industry and your processes can offer you a system that supports all your processes.
